Well done buddy!, all the hard work has finally come to fruition! did you take a camera and take a snap of 80k?


Yup...

Was meant to message you once I passed like I said I would Wil, but my phone had died on me. Oh well, now you know!

And the cars first wash in 9 months on the way to inspection...

The car now has a little shine to it!
Should have taken photos of when it was getting inspected, but I forget due to being too stressed and worried.

Suspension time! Posted Image

Today was very productive, I got all my parts together and swapped out the original suspension for a completely new setup. These are the new parts I have fitted to the RS-X...

Front bits:

S13 JIC Coilovers 8kg
S13 Lower Control Arms
S13 hubs
S13 Rack ends (shortened 10mm, thread extended 10mm)
R31 Skyline castor rods
S13 SR Turbo calipers
DBA 5000 slotted rotors
Nolathane Bushes

Rear bits:

Aurora springs 2.5" drop, 5kg
KYB Excel-G Shock absorbers

Wheels & Rubber:

Nissan 180SX Type-X Rims
15x6" +40
Kumho KU-18 Tyres 205/60/R15


Picture time...

Original springs Vs. Aurora Srings:

Posted Image



Rear springs in. I'm thinking maybe 25mm worth of spacers if I decide to continue running these rims.

Posted Image



Front bits are out...

Posted Image



New setup Vs. Original setup...

Posted Image



New setup bolted up...

Posted Image



And by the time I had finished fitting everything up, bleeding the brakes, and getting everything sorted, it was dark. So I got the best pictures I could of the car rocking the new suspension setup. Enjoy...

All it needs now is a wheel alignment and I'm set. Can't wait to get out and drive it and see how it handles, time for it's first hills run I think!

Next step.... Body & Paint!

Cheers Dean!

My girlfriend Sarah is awesome. She made me the headrest covers that were missing from my interior set. Made from lace, as per the MKII Silvia options catalogue. And some lace 'RS-X' cushions for the rear seats!

Today was playing with the suspension again. The front was sitting too low from when I put the new gear in. I adjusted this to make the car sit level. Fixed the scrubbing, and made it look a whole lot better!

Not major updates, but a good excuse to post some more pictures! Posted Image
Can't wait to get this thing painted.

Very nice man. Had to ask you, but the Storm Trooper dude was a good touch. :P
Man, better have that finished by the time I come down, which is a bit away. I want to go for a ride in that beauty.

MKII's ?

I know what you mean. I am planning on traveling the world again, so some things may have to be cut back. Plus this car would suit a more original restoration type build I think, and the Type-X rims are growing on me, I think they suit it really well.

CAZMAN R31 Adjustable castor rods.
Now I can whack these in and get everything aligned, and then finally take the car for a proper drive.

For what they are, they're unbelievable value for money. They're Australian-made, and pretty much shit all over anything else on the market.

He's always looking to expand his range, and is currently looking into doing a complete S13/14/etc LCA/castor rod assembly like the Ikeya Formula ones, but much cheaper, and with the ability to rebuild them. Props to you Matty, for getting some of his gear. You wont regret it!

Probably cost about 350-400 for the pair if those are stainless joints on the ends. Or at least that's what I'd pay for a set. CAZMAN stuff is excellent, just rarely available.

They look the same as 3rds production ones, although perhaps a thicker bracket on the end with these.

PS. Matt, when we have a cruise in SA next I'd love for you to take me for a drive in this JDM beauty! You owe me for that bolt ;)
